This issue will be heard by the council on Tuesday, February 9, 2010 at 7:00 p.m.

Exeter proposal would regulate certain dog breeds

February 6, 2010

[…]Some of the rules that dog owners […] would have to follow are:

  • Owners would have to have the animals spayed and neutered.
  • The listed breeds would be limited to one per household.
  • The breeds would not be allowed outside, even in a fenced yard, unless in a “securely enclosed and locked pen or kennel, except when leashed and muzzled.” The pens would need a secure top, and any structures built to house dogs would have to comply with city zoning and building regulations.
  • A “Beware of Dog” sign would have to be put on the premises.
  • All owners or others with such dogs would have to within 10 days of ownership provide proof of public liability insurance for a single incident of $50,000 for bodily injury or death or for damage to property.[…]
